First introduced in Malaysia at HITBSecConf2007, the HITB web hacking game challenges participants to beat the hackgame in the shortest possible time using only a simple web browser. HITBJobs will be featuring the game this year in HITBSecConf2010 Amsterdam as an opportunity for students, security enthusiasts and curious onlookers to try their hand at a simulated real world hacking challenge.
“The web hacking challenge is one of HITBJob’s recruitment tools – it is an opportunity to assess one’s aptitude in translating know-how to real world execution. This integrates with our goals of discovering skilled IT and Security job candidates for recruiting companies,” says Belinda Choong, Marketing Director of HITBJobs
HITBJobs’ web hacking challenge and recruitment portals will be featured at the public exhibition area during both conference days (1st to 2nd July) at the NH Grand Krasnapolsky Hotel, Amsterdam.
HITBJobs will also feature a 4 (four)-day CISSP® Prep Class by Security University (SU). The class will be led by veteran “Master” Trainer Clement Dupuis who is known worldwide as the leader in CISSP® Examination Preparation training. Security University’s CISSP® Prep course prepares information security professionals to pass the rigorous six-hour Certified Information Systems Security Professional [CISSP®] examination. With a 99% pass rate, this SU CISSP® Prep program offers each student a zero-distraction, fully-immersed CISSP® CBK training and certification experience that employs accelerated learning techniques to minimize time-to-proficiency while maximizing retention. At press time, 15 seats are left.
The training runs for 4 days before HITBSecConf2010 Amsterdam (27th to 30th June). The CISSP training fee is EUR2300 for four days. Students also have a “best buy” option to attend both the CISSP® Prep Training and HITBSecConf2010 Amsterdam at a subsidized package fee of EUR2999.
HITBJobs was conceived and launched just as everything else related with HITB - through demand from its supporters and pure organic growth. Focusing primarily on sourcing highly skilled technical engineers, HITB Jobs is positioning itself above traditional recruitment portals by drawing on its technical staff to vet applicants - something that more general recruiters are not able to do as well especially when it comes to network security specific roles.
In addition, by using metrics which were previously designed for conference challenges and applying these to the education sector, HITB Jobs is also able to filter out promising fresh graduates who, by passing these security exercises, will be given a stronger ranking in our database. This type of additional technical grading will mean that employers will be able to focus not only on academic skills or pure paper qualifications, but will get a clearer picture of how their potential employees will fare in the real world.
“We’re excited to be partnering Security University for the CISSP® Prep training in Hack In The Box’s inaugural European conference, and look forward to a great event,” says Choong.
